Dell Named a Global Elite Launch Partner for Skype for Business: How our investment translates into customer success

Microsoft has named Dell a Skype for Business Global Elite Launch Partner, affirming our enduring commitment to delivering comprehensive enterprise solutions for Microsoft unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) applications. 

Teams across Dell are responsible for helping our customers navigate the path from old to new ways of using technology to improve communications with customers, colleagues and suppliers. Our mission: to deliver a greater return on  customers’ investments in Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, Lync and the highly anticipated new version of Lync, Skype for Business.  

For example, we know that deploying a robust unified communications (UC) solution such as Skype for Business touches the entire organization, from line-of business managers, to users, to IT managers and application administrators. Maximizing return on investment means delivering the infrastructure, end-user devices, software tools, training and services for UC that help each of these customer roles be more efficient and effective.

Unlike other single suppliers, Dell offers end-to-end solutions for Microsoft UC&C. With one vendor relationship, you get:

  • A wide portfolio of servers, networking, storage, PCs and monitors optimized for Microsoft UC&C applications, to help IT deliver better performance, greater capacity, maximum scalability and an enhanced user experience
  • IT software tools to streamline deployment, management and administration–such as our award-winning Unified Communications and Collaboration Command Suite
  • Headsets, phones and room systems qualified by Microsoft for use with their UC platform
  • Software licenses
  • Consulting service to help plan, deploy, manage and support Microsoft UC&C environments.

Today, Dell has 23 Microsoft Gold competencies–more than any other Microsoft partner–a status we’ve earned by exhibiting increased levels of real world customer experience and expertise independently verified by Microsoft.
